If you are looking for OLD style italian cuisine this is the place to go. Quiet atmosphere not too large and very friendly quick service. Beautiful wines and beautiful tastey food. Probably best to book in advance though as there is limited seating . Enjoy!!!

Eight of our club members stayed at this motel for four days for a conference in Blenheim. The outgoing owner was most helpful and considerate. She is training the new owners who will inherit a well run business.

We were so impressed the first time we stayed here by all the little details - ecoya room diffusers, lovely bath stuff etc, and superb cleanliness and will definitely always stay here when we are in Blenheim. We had an extra vehicle and the owners moved their own car to accommodate us! Subsequently our son with special needs needed to...

The room was lovely. Comfortable bed, nice sheets, plenty of space, good kitchen area and nice bathroom. The hotel was a few minutes walk into town in the evening for a meal. The laundry room had one washer and one dryer. Very friendy and helpful host.

I can't resist staying at The Palms when I'm in Blenheim ... its only when they are booked out that you miss out so book it now. Heather and Martin and their girls have literally created a home away from home for travellers. Their attention to detail is always impeccable and they just sense what you need and just seem...

We stayed here for a night so we could do an afternoon wine tour with "Bubbly Grape", so we needed somewhere to park the car & leave our stuff before we were picked up at noon. Heather the owner was really helpful, not only telling us we could park our car but also that she would get our room prepared...

We've just visited Blenheim for the 3rd time in a couple of years from the Sunshine Coast in Queensland Australia, and once again stayed at Blenheim Palms Motel. Martin and Heather are so friendly and welcoming. The rooms are very clean, quiet, comfortable and really well appointed. It's just a short walk to town centre and nice eateries. We will...

We recently booked 3 rooms at the Blenheim palms motel for a two night family wine tasting trip. Heather greeted us with early check ins, lots of local tips, and fresh milk for our coffees. Great start and it just continued that way. The rooms were all excellent, exactly as advertised, and each one had lots of different little touches....

The staff here were really friendly on arrival, talking us through all of the main vineyards and tailoring it to what we told him we were looking for. The rooms offered everything we needed including a little kitchenette area and was nice and clean. The only downside was the bathroom which was a wetroom - not my personal preference, but...
